I originally wanted to talk about the knitting olympics being organised by yarn harlot, but then when I checked in over there I noticed the picture of knitting with some lovely old scissors. Reading on I was intrigued by her discussing steeking and I had to look it up for myself.
Oh and back to the knitting olympics, crazy stuff, the rules:
Concept: You must cast on a project during the Opening Ceremonies of the Winter Olympics (Feb 10)- and finish before the Olympic flame goes out (Feb 26). That’s 16 days.
Lots of teams being formed: can’t keep track of them all – please leave a comment if you are or have formed a team and especially if your team has a group blog.
